WORKSHOPS

In ancient times yoga was often referred to as a tree, a living entity with roots, a trunk, branches, blossoms, and fruit. Hatha yoga is one of six branches; the others include raja, karma, bhakti, jnana, and tantra yoga. Each branch with its unique characteristics and function represents a particular approach to life. Some people may find one particular branch more inviting than another” (Carrico, 2017).

                                                               

Whichever branch or tree you follow, be it one of service, devotion, physical, or intellect, Sankofa Yoga and Wellness Center provides workshops + opportunities to engage all kinds of yogis. Here's our Workshop offerings:

Men on the Mat

Saturday, January 18, 2020 | 5PM - 6:30PM

Designed for our male students in mind, this workshop will provide a well-rounded yoga practice to improve flexibility, build core strength and reduce stress. Many men are intimidated to try yoga for fear of not being flexible or being the only guy in class. If you are a man who is new to yoga, this workshop will introduce foundational postures and give you an idea of what to expect in classes going forward.

 

For men already practicing, it will be a great opportunity to focus on the areas that have the most benefit for men, such as tight shoulders and hips. Whether you're an experienced yogi or completely new to yoga, you'll enjoy the benefits of practicing yoga with "the guys". Led by Malachi
